  • Infant mental health, encompassing promotion, prevention, and treatment;

  • Child care for infants and toddlers;
  • Service program design, development, management, and evaluation; and

Our selection process
Press editors review all submissions for suitability. The Press staff then recommends proposals to the Editorial Board for review. In a face-to-face meeting or a conference call, the Editorial Board discusses each proposal and selects those it believes will help the ZERO TO THREE Press fulfill its editorial mission.

Once the Editorial Board has approved a proposal, ZERO TO THREE Press staff contacts the author to begin negotiating a contract. Submission guidelines for authors and information about current offerings of the ZERO TO THREE Press are available.
